If you are asked how many stars in the sky Moon If there are, then obviously your answer will be-one. But then maybe you could be wrong. Actually our scientists say that not one, but many moons are already present in the solar system. Many moons also revolve around the planet Saturn.
In fact, scientists have recently discovered 62 new moons revolving around the planet Saturn. After the discovery of these moons, there are now a total of 145 moons in the solar system. This is the most important and exciting information about the Solar System world so far.
Saturn overtakes Jupiter
After the new discovery of the moons that revolve around the planet Saturn, it has also gone ahead of Jupiter. Because Jupiter has 95 moons revolving around it. According to scientists from the research department of the University of British Columbia, Saturn has now become the first and only planet in the solar system with more than 100 known moons.
The team of international researchers was ascertaining this fact between 2019 and 2021. The team identified 62 new moons that were previously either too small or too faint to be detected. Scientists have told that the size of some small moons is only 1.6 miles i.e. 2.5 kilometers.
How were these tiny moons formed?
Although scientists have told about all these 62 moons that they are not regular or permanent. The meaning is that according to the conditions of the planet on which they are found, they keep on disintegrating and being formed in new forms.
According to the researchers, they are so small that they keep colliding with each other and keep getting scattered. In such a situation, their number keeps decreasing and increasing. According to scientists, it is possible that millions of years ago all these must have originated from the same moon.
Research continues on tiny moons
Scientists are keeping an eye on these phenomena of the solar system. Full vigil is being kept on which situation is being created around which planet and what is happening.
After studying the surface of Saturn, scientists have told that there would have been a big explosion in a medium-sized moon about 100 million years ago. After which many of his pieces must have been made. Those pieces are now slowly starting to appear.
However, according to the information, soon new moons will be recognized by the International Astronomical Union. A group of more than 12,000 scientists will name these moons.
